Thought I would share this iris folding project with you. I am donating the framed decor piece along with a signed copy of Iris Folding for Christmas - my most recent book, to a CHA charity auction. Although this book is filled with Christmas theme projects all you have to do is change up the papers and images and voila! an entirely new feel to the project.
Here are some of the same designs using different papers, ribbons and embellishments. Sometimes we get into a mode where the creative well seems to be dry, a quick way to fill the well is to look at previously created projects. Keep the basic design and use different papers and embellishments that way half of the job - the design part is already done. Take a look back at some of your holiday cards and see if you can create possibly some Valentine's using the same basic design and valentine theme papers and supplies. It also relieves some of the pressure we put upon ourselves and before you know it the creative well is once again filled to the top.
My intention of this blog is to provide inspiration and share my creative adventures with you. I am a freelance designer, teacher and author working in the craft and hobby industry. It is my sincere hope that through this blog and my work that you will be inspired to create!
